Slashdot needs ones. Seriously, for a community that claims to hate FUD, the OSS types sure like spreading it when it is about the "right" groups. If you actually care about what kinds of things the telemetry communicates back at various settings, the information is all out there for you. No, SSH data isn't one of them. However I am going to imagine you don't, and this is just crap you want to fling at "the bad guys" because you can.
Also a thought for you: Your OS, by definition, has access to anything any program on the system is doing. What would stop it from looking in at any 3rd party SSH server you ran, if you think it does that?
Windows for Warships?
Except that, for the most part, Command line and APIs, even for X in Unix have changed little since 1978, so the "lock-in" is more the equivalent of having the odd pillow between you and where you want to go than the Windows/Apple 10 foot high concrete wall.
In the main, Unix API changes are for very good reasons (Unity and systemd being very visible, but highly atypical examples), whereas Windows API changes are intentional, put there to force upgrades on the user base for commercial reasons.
Once a company chooses Unix, it is hard to imagine they would go back, except at the point of a gun.
You type in something, it displays something completely unrelated (but more profitable for Amazon).
It is working as designed. I am not working as Amazon designed. I have gone elsewhere.
So that is why dealing with them leaves such a bad taste in the mouth! And all along, there was little me thinking it was just the wresting with the UX.
Because if you don't do it, Google says they will de-list your website for being Un-mobile friendly.
Eventually, Webmasters cannot say that being customer-friendly is more important than Google friendly, because "no google=no customers".
You might think there would be laws about "demanding money with menaces" and "abuse of monopoly", but where there is money there no law that cannot be "accidentally misplaced".
Their EuqalLogic and Compellent lines are developed and supported out of Nashua. Might move around now that they own EMC but for now, it is there.
If you think that is true, you have not got your head deep enough into the sand!
